    I have been working at Mack Trucks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People are great and company is socially responsible. Pay is good for the region. Work life balance is good, even with Covid driving layoffs. They are innovating in interesting ways.

    Cons

    Vision is not clear. Lots of buzzwords but no clear direction on how to achieve. Not unusual for a large global corporation. Lots of technical debt and old systems to deal with. Global governance and systems are slow to change.

    Pros

    pay and benefits were great

    Cons

    the company morale was terrible. union vs management on every topic. Almost like Republicans vs. Democrats. Upper management puts on a show to the union that they 'care' for them, but in private meetings, they talk bad about them. Then they made the supervisors do all the dirty work.
